brynThe Sketch that started it all…well not really, not for my Sketch of the Day concept. This sketch I felt was the most appropriate for the first post as this character sketch was a catalyst for my children’s book series, that is of course still in development.

Here name is Lady Bryn Gloriana is the main character of the first book in the Gaveldor series. She is the Princess of Astica, a very wealthy and politically powerful nation. She is the only child, with this comes the burden that one day she will rule this great nation. Of course this burden is to come sooner than later. Her father has been stricken with “The Sickness” a plague that has been going around and is a slow and painful death. Bryn’s mother passed early on in her life, she remembers very little about her other than she was a kind gentle woman and would do anything to help others. Since “The Sickness” would last for some time, he figured it would keep him alive long enough to let his daughter experience life and travel and do what she wants, but unfortunatly this is not the case. He has very little time, to secure a great life for his daughter and to know that she is in good hands and taken care of he needs to make a political marriage; that would mean on her next birthday he would arrange everything. But he knows that she wants nothing to do with this idea because on her next birthday she will only be twelve…
